** A BooksGoSocial Gold Quality Mark Earning Novel **

Turmoil continues to reignin the Murrieta Territory.

Just as the Riverlands fall under control of the Keagan gang, Daniel Keagan is faced with a mysterious new threat. Meanwhile, William Keagan is ready for his journey back to the east Duresian city of New Berkeley, where he will finally reunite with his estranged father.

In the Mountainlands, Hanzah tries to locate Jeannie, Dominic, and Harrison. Far away from their home in the Tokali south, his sister Latera has discovered and freed the leader within her—but is she too late?

The second book of the Civilands series, Crystal Eyes raises the stakes in the world of the Murrieta Territory in ways that will excite, surprise, and inspire.

From the Editor, Katrina Diaz-Arnold of Refine Editing:

“N.B. Austin has done it again. In Crystal Eyes, his latest installment in the fantasy western series, Civilands, the thrills are sharper, the twists more shocking, and the characters more engaging than ever before. As we dive further into the world of the Murietta, we witness how power can affect an individual in a myriad of ways. Whether they sing on its poisonous edge, teeter over the abyss of its questionable morality, or grapple with the danger it brings head on, the characters in Austin’s world learn that any victory, small or large, always comes with a price, and power is always easily and unforgivingly corruptible. In Crystal Eyes, the stakes are upped and now everyone is playing the game—whether they want to or not.”

Just about every book has a hero and a villain. Everyone always roots for the hero and hates the villain, right? Never before have I ever felt bad for the villain, but in Crystal Eyes, I did...well not all the villains.

The Keagan's are horrible people. Their gang is all about bettering themselves. But what if they aren't all the same? William, Daniel and Clovis are the Keagan brothers and want to control trade in the Murrieta Territory and beyond. To do this they have taken over villages and enslaved the Tokali and V'hani people. Though William and Daniel seem to actually care a bit about the people in the lands they are taking over, Clovis is heartless and will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

As much as I hate the Keagan's and what they are doing, I actually have a soft spot for William. He is going through his own personal struggles and it almost seems as if he wants to be good, to be fair to the people in the areas he's overtaken. He talks about being fair to the people. Because of this the situation with his father at the end of the book, which is awful, on top of the result of what happens really made me almost forget that he is one of the bad guys. My heart really went out to him.

In the meantime, Latera is trying to do what she can to not only free her people, but also the Tokali. Though the Keagans managed to put the two groups of people against each other, Latera is working to fix that and to be rid of the Keagans for good. Though how much can a young girl do? And will she be taken serious by anyone? Will she be able to free her people and bring peace to the V'hani and Tokali or will the Keagans rule everything? All these questions I have and hopefully they'll be answered in the the next book Crescent Heart.
